39 weeks... So close!

No baby yet! Will this be my last update before Liam? I ask myself that every day now........

How far along? 39 weeks, 3 days. 4 Days until my due date!
Total weight gain: Ok, so the weight. Throughout my pregnancy, I never once had a doctor/midwife say a single thing to me about it. Not a peep. My weight gain has been pretty average for my size, (At this point I think it's about 40 pounds...maybe a tad above the 'recommended' amount) and it's not something I ever, ever worried about. I went in for my 39 week appt. and saw a nurse I hadn't seen before. She said... 'looks like you gained two pounds this's your diet?' What I wanted to say was... Lady, don't you know that sometime next week, I'll be LOSING about 25 pounds in a day!? But I didn't. I just smiled and told her that my diet was fine.
Stretch Marks: Notta one! I am so thankful.  

Maternity clothes? Actually in this photo, I was able to cram myself into a non-maternity shirt! Amazingly! 
Sleep: Still sleeping quite well, other than a few bouts of 'morning' insomnia. Keith leaves for work at a God-awful hour, (like, 5am. vomit.) and he always wakes me for a good-bye kiss. Usually I fall riiight back to sleep, but this week I have been not able to! Maybe just excitement... ??

Best moment this week:  This week has been very good overall...I feel like Keith and I are both very relaxed and just enjoying our last bit of time as a twosome!

Miss Anything?  Just the usual... my cute jeans, being comfortable, and margaritas :)
Movement: It's so uncomfortable at this point. I mean, I know that I will dearly miss it when he's outside the womb, but at the same time I am ready to eat without getting jabbed every ten seconds!
Food cravings:  Nothing major and I have to say, when you are this pregnant, your appetite decreases significantly. I cannot fit nearly as much food in there as I used to be able to!
Anything making you queasy or sick: aside from the thought of giving birth?
Gender: Oh Boy! 
Labor Signs: Sunday night late, I started having some intense pains... A few contractions, but mostly just bad cramping. It even woke me up very early Monday morning, so I was thinking....maybe this is the start of something...?? I had my 39 week appt. Monday and had my cervix checked...barely dilated! At all! She said the outside of my cervix was opened just a little, but that little man seemed 'very comfortable' in there. NOT what you want to hear when you're this uncomfortable!!

Symptoms: Feet still swell almost every day, & I've just this week started to get a very annoying backache.

Belly Button in or out? outeroo

Wedding rings on or off? off! My hands still really aren't that swollen, but I don't want to take any chances.

Happy or Moody most of the time: I am happy and relaxed! Everything is done & I am just enjoying my last bit of 'free time' to do whatever my heart desires. I actually found myself wondering what to do this morning...I've had a 'to-do' list for so long that now that I don't it's like idk what to do with my time! I ended up cleaning my already very clean house. I had a huge burst of energy and even 're-organized' the magnets on the fridge. Yep. I'm that type of person.

Looking forward to:
I am quite looking forward to having my body back & feeling like 'me' again! 
Showing: The basketball is very hard to hide :)



  1. Ahh! Any day now :) enjoy the last few days with your hubby because very soon your little twosome will never be the same :)

    1. I know girl, for a while it made me so sad (I'm so sentimental) and I would cry if I felt like we weren't spending enough 'quality' time together. But I know having a mini 'us' will just bring us closer!

  2. You look adorable! And don't worry--you'll get your body back and then you'll wish you were pregnant again :) It's kind of sad! Hoping this is the week for you!!!

    1. Thanks girl.... Yeah, I know for sure I'll miss my lil bump bump....and be happy to be 'me' again all at the same time!

  3. SO CLOSE! I cannot wait to see what baby Pope looks like! So exciting! And you look amazing for 39 weeks, I would have seriously had a beat down with that lady. I hear all the time how tiny I am and do I not eat enough? Let me tell you - some people obviously have no filter and obviously also do not know that there are some things you just should NOT say to a preggers. You look great! I bite my tongue, A LOT!

    I love your weekly updates and I am seriously going to miss seeing them. I love your little graphics you add to your pictures. I really think I will start using my professional camera so the pictures start looking better for my blog. It's just so easy to snap a shot with the iPhone, haha.


    1. I know, I can't wait to see what he looks like eitherrr!!
      Yeah a few weeks ago, I want to say I was about 32 weeks, I had ppl coming up to me saying, 'Man you look like you're due any day now!'
      I was like...nope, just huge. I still have two months left! Haha thankfully I am thick skinned, ppl are always gonna have something to say :)
